Training outdoors offers us new opportunities for training in a very natural way and help to transition you and your dogs for outdoor classes after winter indoors. The three main focuses for these groups will be Social, Lead training, emergency down at a distance, and coming to call, all with each other's distraction. Please toilet your dogs before coming to class. Week one: The class will begin by the cars, and please leave your dog in the car while we have introductions and goal setting amongst the group. Train the dogs to calmly get out of the car, safely and politely, to establish good behaviour from the first moments. Lead work training to the paddock, treating this as the start of any walk and again showing good behaviour before we arrive at the paddock More lead training around the paddock for the humans to feel at home in the new space Group training of all on lead exercises in close proximity Training walk return to the car park Week two: Training walk to the paddock including short recalls and downs In paddock social exercises working in pairs and as a group Grooming and examination Tying up practice and stay training Recalls off lead or on a long line as appropriate Week three: New social exercise and group training for distractions Recall training individually and in ready in pairs Down training Heel training Week four: Recall training individually or in groups if ready More social exercises as a group Emergency Down Week five: Tying up and stay training Recall in group Social exercises incorporating emergency down Off lead heel training as a group Week six: Caroline will meet you at the cars but then leave you and watch how you manage your dogs and the walk to the paddock; there's a prize for the best-behaved dog coming out of the car and walking to the paddock in each group!
